Financial Burden of TKA Revisions

2013 Medicare Provider Analysis and Review File (MED PAR)1

ECONOMICAL 1_1

The annual healthcare financial burden of revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is estimated at $2.7 billion based on average hospital charges of $73,000 per case. Analysis of facility costs and Medicare reimbursements shows over 90% of hospitals lose money on revision TKA, with a loss of nearly $10,000 per procedure.
